Took Plan B 68 hours after unprotected sex, 9 days later had a dark brown discharge for only a couple hours. What could this mean?

So run a home urine pregnancy test 14 days after the unprotected sex. If negative repeat 7 days later. If still negative, you're not pregnant. Consider more reliable birth control if you don't want to be pregnant right now. ...Read more
